56 years behind the wheel: Jones reflects on school bus driving career he’s loved


Rowland Jones drove his final school bus route this spring, wrapping up a 56-year career with first the MFL, and now MFL MarMac, School District. Bus driving hasn’t just been a job, but an integral part of who Rowland is. (Photos by Audrey Posten)

Rowland has a small collection of miniature school buses in the upstairs of his rural Monona home, and when he put a new sign up at his farm a year and a half ago, a school bus with the MFL MarMac school name was proudly displayed beneath his name. A school bus is even on his headstone.

Rowland, pictured with a school bus several years ago, said connecting with people has been his favorite part of driving school bus. In many cases, Rowland has watched multiple generations of a family grow up. “My current route, they were either three or two, with the exception of a couple families that moved in. So you get attached to the kids,” he said.
